While Fortnite Battle Royale is a real kick-butt jewel among video games, it still suffers from it's obsession with lore and exclusivity.

Fortnite: Battle Royale is a golden gem among battle royale games, not only smoothly transitioning it's slick old-school military lore from season to chapter, but also implementing character crossovers from the greatest fictions, including Star Wars, Halo, and Indiana Jones. Unfortunately, it still suffers from a lack of contextual fulfillment, highly unpredictable gameplay, and a rather under-selective usage of classic characters. The Battle Pass makes some of the finest skins more a pastime post-it note than an open opportunity for all who wish to play past, present or future. It also makes poor usage of creating a 'leveled' server, in which all participants may play fairly. Cheating and harassment are prominent in it's Creative Mode games, and Save the World mode should probably follow the Battle Royale and Creative modes as free-of-charge.
